Everybody Loves A Clown
Mom, you know these guys?

Sam: [to Dean] About me and Dad. I'm sorry that the last time I was with him I tried to pick a fight. I'm sorry that I spent most of my life angry at him. I mean, for all I know he died thinking that I hate him. So, you're right. What I'm doing right now, it's too little. It's too late. [pause] I miss him, man. And I feel guilty as hell. And I'm not all right. Not at all. But neither are you. That much I know.
